OSTEOPOROSIS

Osteoporosis is a chronic age-related disease in which bones become fragile and more likely to fracture. Early diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis is essential to help prevent fragility fractures, which can cause severe pain, long-term disability, and early mortality.

FRAGILITY FRACTURES

Fragility fractures, which result from low energy trauma, such as a fall from standing height or less, are a sign of underlying osteoporosis. A patient who has sustained one fragility fracture is at high risk of experiencing secondary fractures, especially in the first two years following the initial fracture.

SKELETAL RARE DISORDERS

Skeletal Rare Diseases, being both rare and complex, pose a great challenge in terms of diagnosis and management. To support research and advance clinical knowledge of the field, an IOF Working Group has published an online Atlas (i.e. taxonomy) which classifies more than 90 rare genetic metabolic bone disorders according to their metabolic pathogenesis, outlined in four subcategories. The Atlas provides important information to ultimately help doctors better manage patients affected by these complex disorders.
